I am looking to add more solo Brazilian guitar CD’s to my collection. I already have some albums from Baden Powell and Luiz Bonfa’s “Solo in Rio” which I enjoy, but was hoping that I could get some suggestions on some other CD’s. I should also say that I am aware of Yamandú Costa and I dig some of his stuff but do not currently own any of his music.

Luz das cordas – Marco Pereira & Hamilton de Holanda
Lira Brasileira – Paulo Bellinati
Garoto – Paulo Bellinati
Toquinho & Paulinho Nogueira

I don’t think it qualifies as a solo guitar record, but I absolutely love Gilberto Gil’s recording Gilbertos Samba. Especially his rendition of O Pato. I love his rhythmic take on it. Renato, Im not ready for it, but I would love to learn Gilbertos version of O Pato with your help one day. :)

Hi Kevin, sorry for the late reply. I was sick.
Yes, Gilberto Gil’s version of O pato is amazing. I also wouldn’t rate his version as a solo arrangement, but as an exquisite way of playing the accompaniment. There are others Brazilian singers, like João Bosco and Lenine, who usually play the rhythm guitar in a way that is impossible to write using only chord charts. You have to write it on the staff.
I will teach this song, Getz/Gilberto version, in the next lesson. But it would be a pleasure to teach you Gil’s version. Just let me know in advance so I can write the sheet music.
Some examples of exquisite guitar accompaniments:

I’m glad you’re feeling better. Thank you for sending those track links. They are all amazing. I’m not a good sight reader but I will at least study the rhythms from lesson one. I’m sure you can help me get through it. I will schedule it with you one day next week. Thank you so much for your hard work. I’m loving the site. Practicing hard and learning a lot.
